Philaldelphia, PA band Kaonashi have their new full-length, “Dear Lemon House, You Ruined Me: Senior Year“, due out on May 21st.
“Dear Lemon House, You Ruined Me: Senior Year” continues the story-building efforts of Kaonashi’s 2018 EP, “Why Did You Do It?”, by expanding on the character of Jamie, the androgynous protagonist of the group’s catalog. As the teen enters their final year of high school, Jamie feels the pressure to succeed and make something of their life. The record follows Jamie through their first day of school, romantic relationship with Casey, and turmoils that come with being an American teenager.
“We want this record to make people anxious”, says vocalist Peter Rono. “We want them to feel a sense of urgency. If they catch themselves thinking that they could do something to change the story of the album, then maybe — just maybe — they will take steps to make a difference in the world around them”.
